“… that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord…” (Acts 3:19)
I had a wonderfully pleasant surprise this week when I visited the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati.
They were having their 2015 early spring flower show. This year it is entitled, “Falling Water Gardens: A Modern Work of Nature.”
I was using my day off to re-create, and I was uplifted to a renewed creation.
I happened to pick a time when very few people were there, so there was no sense of needing to keep moving. One could stop and smell the flowers for as long as one wanted.
The fragrance was wonderful.
The fans in the hot house were running creating the sensation of a refreshing spring breeze.
They were playing a very relaxing, ambient music which was so appropriate at the time as one could just stop and peacefully enjoy the sights, the sound and the smell.
There was the added joy that though we still are in winter here, one spiritually can appreciate the arrival of the Lenten Spring. A season of renewed hope and spiritual rebirth.
Winter, like all things does pass away. However, so also do spring flowers and spring flower shows.
